New W108 owner w/ service manual?

I recently purchased a 1973 280SEL 4.5 with a solid body but some mechanical issues, as it sat for quite a while. My background is mainly with Triumphs, MGs etc and I decided to expand my horizon[:)]
I would appreciate some help in locating service manuals for the vehicle as my initial searches only came up with manuals for other series types.
My first concern is getting it up and running safely. I just took it in to a recommended Mercedes specialist to have them do an inspection and make recommendations. The second step will be the interior, it needs new carpet and the driver's seat is rather worn.
As I start getting my hands dirty I will probably have the occasional question or interesting story to tell.

'73 280SEL 4.5
'64 Triumph TR4
and some day more[:D]

We have the factory manual available on CD-ROM.
